June 8, 2017-As most of my friends and readers know, my cat Sebastien is very unique. He has a crazy personality, some bad habits, and he chatters non-stop especially if it’s two in the morning. He is part Maine Coon and is the star of the famed Seabass’ Diaries, a weekly feature, here on The Kitty Cat Clan.
I’d like to pose this question to all of my friends in multi-cat households…does your cat start fights with your other cat and not finish them? Ok. Let me paint a picture for you.
Simba (my Tabby) perches in the living room window and surveys the neighbourhood from the back of the dark brown, leather couch. He sniffs the air, and his eyes settle on the golden retriever that is being walked by it’s human down the sidewalk. Simba is unsuspecting and unassuming because after all, this is his home! He should not be on alert…or should he?
Sebastien has been watching Simba from afar; I can see that he’s also been surveying his every move. I watch as he crouches and slithers up the side of the sofa. His eyes dilate, and he wiggles his furry butt and then WHOMP he slaps Simba across the side of the head and takes off into another room.
Simba gives chase, and before I know it, I’m vacuuming for the fourth time that day. They fight in a tumbleweed of fur, and it looks like something out of a bugs bunny cartoon. They trade blow for blow, and all of the sudden Seabass is on his back meowing loudly and staring at me to save him. Simba has him by the jugular and is about to finish him when I decide to step in and restore peace in my kingdom for the time being.
I’d love to know your thoughts on this and if your cats do the same thing! The question at its core is, Does your cat start a fight and then look to you to stop it? Looking forward to your comments!
